Table of 10, the service was okay, abit pricey but that's probably Melbourne for you (coming from Geelong), food was ok, quite a noisy establishment. Good for a quick bite to eat and outta there.

We dined as a group of 8, I was immediately surprised by the prices on the drinks list; $12 for a cocktail is a rarity for a popular inner suburbs restaurant.

The food itself was great and plentiful and the speed of delivery was incredible. It was under 10 minutes of ordering that everyone on the table had their meals. I will suggest that you try the chocolate taco and the churros.

The decor and furniture had a drab feel but still comfortable, maybe it is part of the mexican feel they are trying to acheive.

I wouldn't place it at the top of my list to return to, but I would dine there again.

Service was extremely fast and our food came out in under 10 minutes from ordering. The meals themselves were delicious (I highly recommend the Chocolate Taco for dessert).

Alcohol was well priced, and the range of both drinks and food on offer was impressive.

The atmosphere could be spruced up - interior decor and furniture were shabby, but perhaps this is part of their identity. The walk to the Men's Bathroom out into a dingy alley kind of detracts from the atmosphere too.

My only complaint is that ALL of the waiters seem to be hard-of-hearing. They frequently misheard (or didn't hear at all) orders, questions and requests.
